Photography Holidays in Amalfi
The Amalfi coast is one of Italy’s top destinations. Stretching about 50km along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the coast has the most breathtaking scenery of cliffs terraced with lemon groves, whitewashed villas clinging to the slopes and colours and views that are a photographer’s dream.
During the week-long holiday you will visit Positano, the town that tumbles down the cliffside, and beautiful Ravello and Amalfi, too, all wonderful locations for photography and sightseeing. Whatever your level of experience, our expert tutor will help you improve your photography skills.
Amalfi also has a reputation for great food, including San Marzano tomatoes straight off the vine and huge and aromatic lemons – which go into the local limoncello liqueur. You will eat and drink very well between photography sessions here in Amalfi.

Where you're going to stay
Terraced into the cliffs, our villas in Amalfi offer breathtaking views of the dramatic coastline and plenty of photographic inspiration, set amid their own lemon groves. All the villas have extensive private outdoor terraces with the turquoise waters of the Tyrrhenian sea sparkling below. It’s a perfect spot for snapping away, and also for long lunches al fresco or an aperitivo overlooking the view, or just a little sunbathing by the pool. The villa interiors are respectfully and beautifully restored, offering modern facilities. (Please bear in mind that given their cliffside locations, our Amalfi Coast villas do have a considerable number of steps.)
